The Carey-On Saloon is very supportive of the military and is located right outside the gates of Peterson Air Force Base in eastern Colorado Springs. Whenever troops deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan, patrons of the Carey-On Saloon would sign hats or banners for them to take with him. One of the soldiers brought back one of the hats to the bar after he returned. LeShawn Carey, owner of Carey-On Saloon, was fined $21,000 for copyright infringement for songs that were sung during Karaoke at her bar. (The Gazette/Jerilee Bennett)
